Abstract

Abstract:

Good business practices start with fostering a sense of community and belonging in the workplace. These actions work to advance the well-being of the people who make up the organization's collective whole. According to Holder's (2014) research in positive psychology, it is the quality of interpersonal relationships that brings or deprives us of happiness. Hence, it makes sense for organizations to want to invest in human capital by creating a sense of belonging and psychological safety for their workers. One way to unite a workforce is through implementing a collective mindset. A collective mind-set is rooted in the belief that together we are stronger and can achieve more together than alone. Collectivist thought processes pivot around dynamic leadership practices, meaning they rely on how leaders and managers execute their responsibilities at work and the impact these actions have on their subordinates.
